Wow, yet another firmware update has been released for the PSP. It seems that Sony is getting sloppy in testing their updates since firmware 3.02 is a simple security update for the system software (put simply, a patch for a bug they found in the system). Since it is only a patch, nothing new has been added to this firmware update. You can download the update the Network Update feature on the PSP or via the regional PSP websites. It is not necessary to update just yet since games requiring firmware 3.02 will not be available for quiet a while.
For those interested, firmware 3.02 is Devhook compatible so it can be emulated on lower firmware versions, however, not all functionality will be supported. Another point is that homebrew support is not available on this firmware version which means you cannot run unsigned code.
Sony is on a roll releasing several firmware updates for the psp and ps3 over the last few weeks, but how hard is it to allow homebrew on the psp? I mean come on, with the ability to play homebrew without the use of exploits, sont will need to spend less time developing new firmware updates and instead concentrate on developing new features to kick ds out of the ball park!
Sony doesn’t allow homebrew because people use it to pirate games.
Then how do you explain the PS3. Sooner or later someone will hack the ps3 and find a way to play pirated games. Hell, allowing linux on the ps3 is making the process quicker since you can rip BD-DVDs via linux.
How do u download this it sounds cool!
If you are refering to the firmware update, you can find at either http://www.yourpsp.com (UK) or us.playstation.com (US) or http://www.playstation.jp (JAP). Easiest way is to use the Network Update feature providing that you have Wifi access.
